Year C- The Ascension of the Lord
46 and he said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day,
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusAfter my resurrection, I filled the hearts of my Apostles and disciples with joy. Light entered their minds making the Holy Scriptures very clear to them regarding the purpose of my coming into the world, my suffering and my rising from the dead.
By my wounds you are saved. So I descended into the lowest regions of the earth, I penetrated darkness and death and came back victorious, I defeated Satan the enemy of life, I defeated sin and I lavishly granted you my Mercy. I reconciled all humanity to God the Father, and now after forty days I was ready to ascend into Heaven.
I confirmed the faith of my followers. I gave spiritual gifts to the believers so that they could pray in my name for the healing of the sick and for their deliverance from evil spirits.
I gave instructions to my Apostles to preach the Good News of my Salvation till the ends of the earth and to baptise everyone in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
I revealed myself in my glorified body to many chosen souls who were pure of heart and would benefit from my consolation. This way I was planting new seeds of faith and hope in my teachings, so that they would in turn fortify the new Church, which was taking form.
As they worshiped and participated in the joy of my Ascension, I blessed them and extended my hands over them and over my Church throughout time.
Put all your trust in me, since I am preparing a place for you in Heaven. Just as I ascended to my Father to enter into eternal bliss in His presence; the day will come when I will raise you up to heaven to enjoy de triumph of my Redemption.
